Ealing Half Marathon CIC are delighted to announce Fuller, Smith and Turner PLC, the London Brewer and premium pub company, as a major sponsor of the event which takes place on 24th September 2017 and is expected to attract over 7,000 runners on the Sunday together with 1,500 children in the Ealing Mini Mile on the Saturday .
‘Having partners that share our values and community focus is of paramount importance to us’ said Sandra Courtney, Race Director. ‘Fuller’s is a great example of an organisation that recognises the enormous contribution the event has brought to West London and it’s great to have them on board’.
Jonathon Swaine, Managing Director of Fuller’s Inns added ‘We are delighted to return as an event partner for the Ealing Half Marathon. Having been involved since the first event in 2012 it’s amazing to see how far the event has grown. Its ethos as a community event, which inspires people, resonates with the values at our brewery and in our pubs, making it a great event for us to get involved with. We would look forward to helping the event to grow and are keen to see it remaining one of the first events people look for in the calendar – long live the #EalingFeeling!’.
Fuller’s will assist in the marketing and promotion of the event and will have a number of staff and customers taking part on the day. Local Fuller’s pubs will offer runner competitions and organised training runs prior to race day as well as hosting events on the day itself.
We are also delighted to announce that in the build up to the event there will be a special edition ‘Ealing Half’ guest beer on sale in selected pubs in London. ‘It’s fair to say that one or two of our runners have been known to frequent Fuller’s pubs and I know the attraction of a Pint of Ealing Half should prove extremely popular!’ added Sandra.
